Parents have a strong affection for their children, not just humans but other species also exhibit this trait.
Parents share a unique bond with their offspring and will go to great lengths to protect them.
This video serves as an example of this instinct.
A distressed mother rabbit discovered a snake had infiltrated her litter of young rabbits.
Despite snakes being known as fierce predators, the brave mother fought back, engaging with the snake head-on. She unexpectedly launched herself at the snake.
She then diverted the snake’s attention away from her offspring. The mother rabbit persisted in chasing the reptile even after it became active.
According to National Geographic, mother rabbits fiercely protect their young.
